Omar A.

Mogadishu, Banadir, Somalia

Hello dear travelers! Welcome to Mogadishu! Join me on a tour and explore Mogadishu City, the White Pearl of the Indian Ocean.

My name is Omar and I am here to ensure your stay in my beautiful country is safe, enjoyable, and highlighted by the many cultural, historical, and natural attractions that define Somalia.

Your safety is my top priority while on tour, so my tours always include security personnel who oversee our entire experience. Combined with my skillful selection of attractions and routes, your tour will be focused on enjoying the sights, sounds, and flavours of Mogadishu, rather than worrying over personal safety.

I have been guiding travelers for two years here in Mogadishu with great success. I can't wait to show you our top sightseeing attractions - and hidden gems too. We can visit Lido beach, Jazeera beach, the Mogadishu light house, Bakara market, the Black hawk down site, Mogadishu mile, Afgoye orange farms, and more.

Please have a look at my published tour options for some ideas on how we can make the most of your time in Somalia. Should you have any special requests or questions, please don't hesitate to inquire. I look forward to planning your once-in-a-lifetime adventure here in Mogadishu!
